Community support services are a 1to1, short term service, a step on the road to independence and to an enhanced quality of life. The purpose of this service is to support you in the community and at home to achieve your goals in life.
Your outcomes or specific goals are set out by you at the beginning of your support. Once goals are set, a worker will help you identify realistic steps towards achieving your desired outcomes. These steps will form the basis of your support plan and this will enable you to track the progress you are making.
Examples of outcomes include:
To know how to look after your own physical and mental health, being able to deal with stress and knowing how to keep yourself feeling well
To access community facilities to develop friendships and interest
To return to employment
To have the confidence to use public transport to reconnect with friends or family
To have the skills needed to manage your own tenancy e.g. household tasks, shopping, budgeting, and setting up utility services
To enrol on a course to learn new skills or work towards a qualification
To be part of the local community, e.g. engaging with faith organisations, joining clubs, volunteering
